Re: Camel Milk Soap

I find that any soap with a lot of olive oil is unduly difficult to lather but it has positive sides too. The skincare is excellent.

Re: Review - Edwin & Jagger Cooling Menthol

Me too, I can't say that the scent really wows me. It's ok, but the lather and the menthol effect are great.

Re: OSP - Obsessive Soap Professional - UK

An excellent soap. Great lather in no time with a very nice citrusy scent and plenty of menthol goodness.

Re: Cool Cologne Lather Shave Cream

This cream lathers very well, but I'm not a fan of the scent. The menthol effect is very subdued so I only notice/noticed a minimal cooling sensation. The skincare to me, is lacking.

Re: NOS Colgate Barber Soap

I have a vintage Colgate stick which came from Sweden. It still has a nice, light scent and does it ever lather great!

Stirling Glacial Margaritas in the Arctic shaving soap

Yesterday I received a lovely gift in the mail from two wonderful friends. It's the new limited edition Stirling Glacial MITA soap which is a hyper-mentholated version of the regular version. All I can say is "Rod, you out-did yourself. You are pure genius!" Here is my review of it: Ease of latherin...

Stirling Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo shaving soap

Here's my review of the Glacial Eskimo Tuxedo soap which I recently bought! I had been told so many times about the world-renowned Sharp Dressed Man soap, and the Green Irish Tweed fragrance. I must say that if this is what Sharp Dressed Man and GIT smell like they are both beautiful. The Eskimo Tux...

Italian Barber Acquatico shaving soap

This lovely soap was given to me by my wonderful wife together with two other great items! Ease of lathering: 10/10--Some of the richest lather a man can want in seconds! Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect, perfect stability. General skincare: 7.5/10--Fair in that aspect. Not the most moisturizing ...

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect stability so multi-pass shaves are no problem. General skincare: 7/10--Not as moisturizing as I'd like, but still dece...

Re: Razorock One-X shaving soap

Gary, there's really no menthol effect that I could detect. I think whatever menthol there is is for the scent. It's still an awesome soap with great performance.

Re: Tcheon Fung Sing Sottozero shaving soap

Gary, the menthol from this soap is not that strong but it's still very noticeable and pleasant. I used it again this morning and I enjoyed it very much. :)

Ease of lathering: 10/10--A few swirls of a wet brush and BINGO, tons of rich lather. Longevity of lather: 10/10--Five guys can shave u...

Razorock One-X shaving soap

I received the One-X soap and matching aftershave yesterday and I used them both this morning for the first time. Here's my review of the soap: Ease of lathering: 10/10--Unbelieveably easy to lather. A few swirls is all it takes. Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect. Multi-pass shaves are so easy! Ge...
